18 in 2018, Crochet stuff, WIPS

WIP Wednesday

Both my current WIPS are part of my 18 in 2018.

Skein #3 is Camouflage by Red heart yarns. its a jumbo skein. So I have a lot of crocheting or knitting to do with this big boy.

My first project is a pair of camo baby pants. I need new stuff in my shop and I thoughtyarn heart these would be cute.ย  Pattern is by Cass Dodge. (<<<pattern link. ) The pattern is easy and well written.

I already have one project done using skein #2. Hyacinth. Also by Red Heart but this is their accent line which is discontinued. ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  I will post about that on Friday. Hopefully I have these pants and my second project with the hyacinth finished.

18 in 2018– Skein 1

My plan for 2018 (if you missed my last post) is to use 18 full skeins ( pretty close to full) of yarn from my stash. I am continuing the theme from my A year of Projects I started last year, which is to slim down my yarn stash( yarn balls mostly).

I don’t have a shortage of projects. I have a dozen knitting and crocheting mags, 214 bought patterns and over a thousand free projects saved on ravelry.

For my first skein I chose Red Heart Accent Guava. (discontinued) .

My project is Milkshake Kawaii Cuddler by 3amgracedesigns .

The first half of the cuddler used a good chunk. I hope I use up all of this yarn . I dont need a another ball of yarn.

For some reason I feel really rushed to finish these projects. Maybe its because I just want to make room for other stuff. I have about 5 skeins marked for this … venture. 18 is a big number. People can vote at 18..lol

This is gonna be a fun year ๐Ÿ™‚

Crochet A Longs, Sophie's Universe Blanket, WIPS

Sophie’s Universe Blanket

It finally happened. After a few years after the release I have the desire to make the Sophie’s Universe Blanket.

I am sorta a fan of big projects. I like the projects I can make in separate pieces and sew together. This is not one of those big projects.

Its does take a lot of yarn and time. Which I have both of.

I took some time to choose my colors. I really love one of the sample blankets on Dedri Uys’s websiteย ย ( link opens a new window). Which is her first photo on her ravelry page. The turquoise is so dominant . It really catches the eye. ( its one of my favorite colors).

I changed out the canary for Caron’s Cream, but basically kept the rest in the same color family. I think I will be changing a few colors as I go . I want to make this a mostly purple blanket. Another color that sticks out to me are the pinks. I am not a fan of pink. So I want to work in the purples in the big areas and switch them with the pinks for the smaller areas.

Here is my Sophie’s journey so far…

WIP Wednesday – Edith Sweater

So after a few years of making Edith hats , I caved. I was asked to make an Edith sweater. I have been asked a few times to make one but this year I said yes. I am confidentย  with my knitting where making a simple sweater wont scare the hell out of me. The pattern is easy enough. Its a paid pattern by Brigette Piniย .

I started October 1st but really got into it ( meaning I put hat orders on hold until I make a good chunk of this sweater) on the 3rd .

As of last night I am almost done with one sleeve. I want to have this shipped out by the 16th.
